Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you will have fun. I was home alone for last 2 Thanksgiving days. This year, I will be home with 2 guests. I am so looking forward to relax and eat. There will be a lot of food. I will be doing most of the cooking (including turkey). I plan to impress the guests with my cooking skill. I am excited and nervous. Wish me luck~! I am sorry if some of you are home alone or if you have to go to work. I've been there many times. :( The day after Thanksgiving, I will put on a Santa hat... I plan to wear the Santa Hat until Christmas. (I bought 2 hats, just in case the first one would get dirty, etc...) I am thankful that I have an able body to go to work, exercise, and play. I hope to become financially stable so I can give back to the society. For now, I can use financial help. :( God bless everyone. Enjoy the magic moment. 2010 was fun so far - little more to go...
